There are many reasons that a person can lose control of their vehicle. The most common reason is that they veer out of their lane and end up overcorrecting. Overcorrecting can also happen when a person slides on ice or hydroplanes on wet asphalt. Another reason that they may have been driving while distracted. When they look up and realize that they have veered out of lane or are too close to a vehicle, they lose control. Many times, when a driver loses control of their vehicle, it ends up in a single-vehicle accident, which can be one of the most dangerous kinds of accidents.
